Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clarkston District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards maintain the Math, English Language Arts and Science electives from middle and high school. The upper division elective curriculum in these subjects remains, and students are able to take these classes after taking lower division core classes. The Common Core State Standards do add literacy standards to science, even in elective classes, which will allow more practice in reading and analyzing texts.
English Language Arts follows the same pattern throughout each child’s schooling, so students have time to practice the new skills learned. By, tenth graders students are also prepared to take the High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) in their English Language Arts classes. Eleventh grade students in the district take American Literature. They apply the skills learned in previous courses to American Literature from the 1700’s to the present. Twelfth grade focuses on writing for college and career to ensure students are writing at a college level.

Clarkston District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Clarkston School District has started to adopt the new Common Core State Standards. These standards follow a certain set of strands from kindergarten to twelfth grade. This allows students to build on foundational skills that will make them successful in either career or college. The individual subject areas help students to understand their interests and find the direction they want their path to take. The standards build on each other in a logical way that fosters students learning and self-confidence. A standard might say “answer questions about text with guidance” in kindergarten, and as the student moves through grades the standard will be the same with the “with guidance” portion removed.
We currently cover the following Clarkston-area school district: Clarkston School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Clarkston Educational News
- Parent Partnerships - This unique program combines both traditional and home-based schooling. Students in this program receive most of their core curriculum at home, and attend traditional school one day a week. While on the traditional campus, students participate in physical education, music, art and science. The district provides the Math, English Language Arts, and Social Science curriculum for the parents to be completed through home-based instruction.
- Response to Intervention - Response to Intervention (RTI) is a program many districts around the country have adopted. In this program, educators use data based analysis to intervene with students who need additional support in their academic subjects. The program is set up in a pyramid model, with different levels of intervention at each level. The goal of the district is to have most of their students at the bottom of the pyramid, needing little or no intervention in core subjects, and the least amount of students in the top of the pyramid needing significant amounts of intervention.
- Alternative Education - Clarkston school district has set up a system in which all students can achieve their academic goals, given the right learning environment. For students not successful in traditional high school, they can be successful at the alternative high school. Students are able to modify their school schedule in ways that work for them. The school has a staff of credentialed teachers that assist the students in reaching their goals. In addition to curriculum focused on the student receiving a high school diploma, the school also offers GED preparation classes.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: What to Do if a Child Has Been Bullied
When a child has been bullied by another they are made to feel a loss of personal security and a fear of everyday events. If a parent has seen signs, such as a loss of material items, physical or emotional scarring, they need to take steps to help their child feel safe again. The first step is for the parent to talk with the child and let them know that there is concern and help is available. Parents can either ask direct questions about bullying or treatment by kids at school, or they can ask questions that will lead to a bullying conversation. Some of these questions would be more general about if there are special friends that the child hands out with or sits with, and if there are kids they don’t like or don’t like them. After this conversation, if a parent feels like there is a bullying issue, they should talk with the teacher.
